The Ministry of Education has announced that senior secondary school students will be given extra NCEA credits to make up for COVID-19 disruption.

New Zealand’s Education Minister Chris Hipkins announced the new move on Wednesday.

For each 5 credits a student attains towards their NCEA, they will be entitled to an additional 1 Learning Recognition credit. Students will be allowed up to a maximum of 10 additional credits for students undertaking NCEA Level 1, or up to a maximum of 8 additional credits for students at NCEA Levels 2 or 3.

University entrance will be awarded to students who achieve 12 credits in each of three approved subjects.

Hipkins said the move was needed due to the massive disruption COVID-19 had been to the school system. He said the Government was moving to ensure students would not be penalised.
